Thank you for your letter in which you told about the press in your country and ask what publications I read.
Well, we have hundreds of newspapers and magazines in Ukraine for everyone’s tastes. As for me, I am not much of a reader. Of course I follow the events in Ukraine and in the world, and I look for information on TV and the Internet. The newspaper I look forward for reading is «Football». It’s a weekly, and contains more than a dozen pages. I compete with my father for reading it. It’s a paper for real men! In the «Football» they describe the latest football events not only in Ukraine, but worldwide, provide commentaries and interviews with sportsmen and sports officials. Also, there are articles on football stars’ private life.
Don’t you think that in a few decades newspapers will disappear and their place will be taken by the Internet? What’s your opinion on modern technologies? Write me soon.
